Swardeston are National Club champions after a 53-run victory over Nantwich in a rain-affected final at Lord’s on Monday.

Nantwich defeated Ormskirk in the semi-final, whilst Swardeston saw off Ealing to book their place at the Home of Cricket. Nantwich elected to field after winning the toss with supporters hoping this was the day that the trophy would be returning to Nofolk.
